Classicism   •   Edward Lear @ Wikipedia

The Englishman Edward Lear (1812-1888) was a landscape painter, draftsman and writer best known for his works of Victorian Nonsense literature. As a draftsman Lear earned his money at age 15, after the family was impoverished by his father's speculation. Her first illustrations of parrots appeared in 1830. In the following years Lear was able to make several orders for Lord Stanley, president of the Zoological Society London, because of his reputation as an ornithological painter. In 1835, Lear decided that he wanted to become a landscape painter. Although Lear suffered from epilepsy and depression throughout his life, from 1836 onwards he traveled throughout Europe, where he made many other drawings, which he later translated into watercolors or oil paintings. In total, three large volumes with bird and animal drawings, which were created during the trips, as well as seven books about his travels appeared.

To his 1859 created image " Petra " there had been both drawings and watercolors. He designed his landscapes mostly as pure landscape, as in " Masada on the Dead Sea " from 1858. In " Nuneham " (1860), a flock of sheep revives the lush green landscape. The picture is different in 1860, "The Pyramids Road, Gizah", where the landscape with the pyramids stands in the background, while in the center stands the avenue full of people and their numerous animals. © Meisterdrucke
